Thanzi's progeny keeps rocking the rings and this past weekend it was yet again the Ridgebow puppies that took it all! The dame to this litter is a Chango daughter so that makes us extra proud! 

Ridgebows Scion of Thanzi won the intermediate class and later on also best male winning both the CAC and the CACIB.

Ridgebows Scilla of Thanzi also won the intermediate class closely followed by litter sister Ridgebows Siri of Thanzi. In best bitch Scilla came out as the winner gaining her 14th CAC and 6th CACIB! Siri placed nicely as 3rd best bitch with the Res.CACIB.

So in the ¨battle¨ of Best Of Breed it stood between litter siblings Scion and Scilla and this time it was Scions turn to come out on top! He also managed to win the group but was not placed in the Best In Show competition! 

Breed judge was Erna-Britt Nordin, Sweden

Group judge was Roberto Schill, Rumania

BIS judge was Bo Skalin, Finland


Once again big congratulations to breeders Sven and Bitte Stjärnfeldt and handlers Ulrika and Jessika!

We recieved some great news from Crufts today where Thanzi's daughter (Chango's grand daughter) Ridgebow's Scilla of Thanzi first won a strong Limit class ,12 entries, and later on also managed to win the reserv bitch challenge certificate!! Biggest congratulations to breeders Sven and Bitte Stjärnfeldt and to Scillas handler Ulrika Blom on this great achivement! 

Judge today was Mrs E Tan-Hietalahti from Finland.


Scilla has had a tremendous show career so far she was the top winning ridgeback last year in Sweden winning the Swedish Gold list last year competing only from junior and intermediate class! Scilla will turn 2 years old on the 29th of may and we are extremly proud of this girl and her accomplishments so far and I think this star will shine for a long time!
